GT-Four Play is solid. You can probably count on it, even though expensive. But then again what isn’t for these?

Installed an new hose and clamps and problem solved.

But!!! I saw that the rubber throttle intake adapter had an tear. Tried to glue it but better is a new part 17861-88382.
Unfortunately, not available anymore.

I saw at gt4play.uk they carry an aftermarket unit:
https://gt4-play.co.uk/shop/throttle-bo ... er-coupler

I think I am going to order this one. Opinions anyone?


Gotten plenty of items from gt4-play. They're overseas but stuff ships pretty quick from them considering.

As always, another challenge.

Finally found me some time to attack some problems.
First the ERL water injection is having a leak. Found the leak, contacted ERL and now waiting for response.
Very old part, probably not available anymore.

Than the intercooler adapter. Well, the gt4play one is having an 60 mm (actually it is 63 mm) intake and the intercooler is having an 50 mm outlet. *Sigh*
So I have to fix and fit the gt4play adapter or I have to fix the stock intercooler outlet or I can try to get me an new build intercooler.
Ordered an silicon reducer, everywhere available, but when I took an close look, the intercooler outlet is not exactly lined up with the throttle body intake (??). In the 27 years I own this car, I never noticed this!

All this, not easy in Holland, since these cars become very rare now.

Keep you posted.

What about finding a 5mm thick silicon coupler and cutting it up and putting it between the throttle inlet and intercooler outlet?

Well, finding an custom air/air intercooler is an challenge too. Perhaps find me an local company who can build one. This intercooler on my car is 30 years old now.

Tried to fit the GT4play adapter, but that needs some grinding and adjusting. Grinded the washers from the throttle body bracket too. Throttle body and adapter are 60mm.
Now it fits:

Discovered that the stock intercooler is not lined perfect with the throttle body, new for me:

Awfull litte space between GT4play adapter and intercooler.

Ordered an silicon reducer and try to make that fit, otherwise, and better, find me someone who can remove the 50 mm outlet and weld an 60mm intercooler outlet in perfect fit with the throttle body.

After some cutting and pasting I was able to make an silicon reducer ready to fit:

The best thing to do is modify an stock intercooler with an 60 mm outlet. I will contact Abean and see if he is willing to ship to Holland.

Now I have to wait for response from ERL Aquamist. The valve is leaking and I need new seals, but pretty neat stuff. I do have an box with several rubber seals, but no one fits.

Strange enough ERL aquamist is not responding very well, too bad. In the past I had never issues with them.

Anyway, at an local motorbike shop I was able to find me some replacement seals and after installing and pressurizing the system (about 10 bar!) the valve is not leaking anymore.
So, another problem solved.
Let's hope that it is working for another 20 years. :)

Finally, I got mail from ERL: if the system is going down, no parts available anymore, buy new... *sigh*.

Ofcourse an new problem occured. The filler pipe is rusted. Wholes in the pipe and the plate is very bad. Another challenge.
Only the gasket is deliverable. :)
